    1. Olaplex Hair Perfector No 3 Repairing Treatment to help deal with broken ends and just generally damaged hair.

    Elena Garcia/BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    Check out my full review on Olaplex No. 3, which is an awesome little miracle potion.

    Promising review: "After my stylist left the bleach on entirely too long, my hair needed major help. My ends felt stringy, rough, and mostly just broke when touched/brushed/were wet. It was a mess. This significantly improved the condition of my hair. I can actually touch it again and it feels like hair instead of hay. I would definitely recommend trying this if you have damaged hair!" —Jaclyn DeGorter

    Get it from Amazon for $28. Cruelty-free.

    2. Fanola No Yellow Shampoo for the best damn purple shampoo your gray, super-lightened, or decolored hair could ever ask for.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Check out more info on Fanola No Yellow Shampoo.

    Promising review: "The best blonde toner out there. I have used many others, and this is far and away the best of all. Not only does it remove any and all brass from my hair, it is also PH-balanced and reduces porosity, unlike other color-depositing toners out there. Great for damaged, frizzy hair. I have a lot of tones and contrast in my hair, so I do not leave it for very long: 20 seconds max, otherwise I'll end up with some violet streaks in my hair. If you leave this in for over a minute your hair will turn purple, if that's what you're going for." —KKol

    Get it from Amazon for $10.29+ (available in four sizes). Cruelty-free.

    3. Cantu's Shea Butter Hair Moisturizing Cream — it's perfect for natural hair that could use some control and maintenance.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "What can I say? It's Cantu! All their products work. I have been using these products for two years and now my hair is so thick and long that I'm afraid I'll become the black version of Rupunzel. Great quality for the money!" —Tenji

    Get it from Amazon for $5.63.

    4. Biotin Shampoo that's formulated to help in the prevention of hair loss but can also help give a little thickness to anyone dealing with fine and thin hair.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "For several years now, I have had thinning near the front of my hairline and a balding spot forming over my left temple/forehead region. No new growth in years. I have used this shampoo for one week and I have little stubble there now and I swear it feels like new growth! It's crazy. I had been hopeful but this is really fast. I even made my husband feel that balding spot to make sure I wasn't imagining it and he confirmed it. I have changed nothing else in my routine, only adding this shampoo. In addition, I have had dermatitis on my scalp for years, which I'm pretty sure contributed to the hair loss. I haven't had itching or flaking since I started using this." —Amber Copeland

    Get it from Amazon for $11.95+ (available in four sizes). Cruelty-free.

    5. Coco & Eve's Like A Virgin hair mask – it's made with a nourishing mix of coconut and figs to help you achieve flawless, silky locks.

    amazon.com

    Check out our full review of Coco & Eve Hair Masque (#2)!

    Promising review: "I have to use this as a leave-in conditioner for now. Warning kids: 18 years of platinum hair catches up with you. But it gave my hair life again. It keeps the frizz away and makes those spilt ends disappear. I can only imagine how well it works on normal hair." —Pepa

    Get it from Amazon for $47.41. Cruelty-free and 100% vegan.

    6. Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to give your hair some serious volume and amazing texture — I'm telling you, your hair will reach whole new heights.

    Elena Garcia/BuzzFeed, amazon.com

    Check out my full review on Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray about all the volume it gave my flat hair.

    Promising review: "This is my newest rave! Smells fantastic and gives great texture to even thin hair — it also doubles as a dry shampoo to revive your blowout. Love it! Don't let the price hold you back, a little goes a long way and you'll be glad to have it in your beauty arsenal!" —Matryoshka

    Get it from Amazon for $46. Cruelty-free.

    7. A hydrating argan oil hair mask for the deep conditioning your dry and damaged locks really, really need.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This product is amazing. After frequent flat ironing, my hair began to lose its nice texture. It became very dry and totally damaged. I was searching for something that I could use to revive my hair. After two washes, my hair looks so soft and shiny. Wow — I love my hair now." —Madhu

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    8. Celeb Luxury's Viral Colorwash to color or maintain your colored hair — just note that it's meant for people with highly lightened or bleached hair, as well as pale blondes.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I am growing out my natural gray/silver hair, and the lengths are bleached light blonde with an unpleasant yellow tinge. For the last year, I have tried so many toners, purple shampoos, color rinses, etc. This is the only product that worked...now my hair is all the same color and I am finally free of the yellowish hue!" —Jess

    Get it on Amazon for $35 (available in 12 colors). Cruelty-free and 100% vegan.

    9. Silk18 Natural Hair Conditioner, a sulfate-free treatment designed using argan oil, amino acids, and keratin for some serious silky locks.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Lemme tell you how amazing this conditioner is. Not only does it smell like grandma is baking, not only do you get this pleasant little scalp tingle when you use it, but after just a few days my hair looks like a freakin' Pantene commercial. Buy it, use it, tell the world." —D Paige

    Get it from Amazon for $10.40. Cruelty-free.

    10. Batiste Dry Shampoo – it's consistently among the top-rated thanks to its ability to absorb dirt and grease. Plus, it'll make it seem like it hasn't been eight days since the last time you washed your hair.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love, love, love this stuff!! I, like others with dark brown hair, have had to put up with trying to get all that white stuff out of my hair when using dry shampoo. Which just ended up leaving my hair dull looking. But this product is simply amazing! Not only does my hair have much more body, but it also blends with my color, reduces my part line, and truly fills my hair with a fantastic depth of color, fullness, and manageability. Get this — you won't be sorry!!" —KathleenBB

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I ordered this curling wand after reading the good reviews, and here I am writing another good review for this product!!! It's easy to use, safe, and it operates up to 410 degrees. I'm sharing some pictures to hopefully give you an idea of how well it works!!! My first time using it, I spent less than 30 minutes to get my hair done. I was out for half a day and coming back home with the same style. This is a long-lasting styling tool! Highly recommended!!!!" —garriual

    Get it from Amazon for $24.49+ (available in two sizes).

    12. A Vitagoods Scalp Massaging Shampoo Brush to stimulate your scalp and give you a pleasant, relaxing experience while you shower.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I think that it may take a little getting used to. When you think of a massage, you do not think of something vibrating at a very fast pace. But once you get used to it, it's nice. It's giving your scalp that extra love that it needs but generally does not get. It means BUSINESS. It does not give me knots, which is extremely important. Plus, stimulating the scalp is key to hair growth!" —Tessy C.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.49+ (available in four colors).

    13. Supercream Coconut Curl Styler by Deva Curl that's formulated to tame frizz, add shine, and totally redefine your curls.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "These products are AMAZING. My 12-year-old daughter has unruly frizzy curls. Some strands are curlier than others so it's prone to dread overnight. We've tried expensive shampoos and conditioners, we've tried moisturizing treatments, we've tried countless creams, styling products, leave-in conditioners, and special combs. Her hair was always a frizzy mess. I cannot stop telling people how amazing this is. The two photos don't do the before/after comparison justice. Her hair has caused tears and fights because it's been hard to manage. With these products, her hair is beautiful and manageable. The after photo was taken after she got out of the pool and gave it a quick brush. She last used the cream two days ago and it's still working. I'm not a paid advertiser. I bought these products after reaching the end of my rope. They work. They are amazing. I am a happy mom with a VERY relieved preteen. It is so worth the price." —M. McLaren

    Get two bottles from Amazon for $32.56. Cruelty-free and vegan.

    14. Hannah Natural's Henna powder hair dye — a 100% natural and chemical free product that'll give your hair a nice red hue.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I can't stress enough how much I LOVE henna. I use it for pretty much everything — hair, nails, and lips. This is the cheapest henna I've found that hasn't lost its quality. I've been using henna for about a year and it leaves a gorgeous, natural-looking red that no chemical dye I've used could beat." —Krista M.

    Get it from Amazon for $6.98.

    15. TIGI Catwalk Curls Rock Amplifier for providing amazing hold and defining curls by enhancing natural texture while protecting against humidity.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "Holy cow this stuff is incredible. My hair just isn’t that nice — super thick, but neither curly nor straight, mostly dry and frizzy. Until now... I used a wide tooth comb to run conditioner through in the shower, then towel dried and used a small amount of this while my hair was very wet, even spritzed with water as I put the product through. Then I let it naturally dry and it isn't crispy in any way; just soft, flowing hair with natural curl and minimal frizz. It’s my new cant-live-without product. Wow." —JoJo

    Get it from Amazon for $9.66.

    16. Shea Moisture's Hold and Shine Daily Moisture Mist — it uses coconut and hibiscus to help tame any frizz.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I read about this product in Allure magazine. A stylist swears by it and never leaves home without it. So I bought it 'cause I use their weightless shampoo and conditioner. Love them. So this one is good too. Brings the curl back tames that little frizz and adds body. I like it so far. Works just fine." —Brenda P

    Get it from Amazon for $8.04.

    17. A Remington's 1” flat iron that uses anti-static technology to help straighten your locks, calm fly-aways, and give you with the straight-hair look of your dreams.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've had this flat iron for over two years and I love it. No shortages or anything! I've used it to make beautiful curls and to get my hair bone-straight. The plates are sooo much longer than any other flat iron I've seen or used. Heats up in 15 seconds and cuts off after an hour, so I never have to worry when I'm rushing to school and forget to turn it off. It has a long swiveling cord. I just love this!" —S. Pie

    Get it from Amazon for $17.60.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I love this stuff. Never flaky like gels, and moisturizes as it controls my edges and adds shine to my hair. If you have time to wrap your head in a scarf for a few minutes after applying, your edges look even better." —Caryn R.

    Get two 2.25 oz jars from Amazon for $11.28.

    19. A Wet Brush detangling brush for those of us with hair that secretly aspires to become a bird's nest.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "My 5-year-old has long hair that tangles, matts, and becomes an unruly animal of its own. Everything from argan oil, special conditioners, shampoos, and wide-tooth combs surrendered at her hair's strength and stubbornness. I endured crying, snarling, and side-eyes from other parents. A stylist at a salon suggested this brush. I rolled my eyes and plunked down $8. This brush did what it said, and no more tears. My daughter has naturally curly hair and this brush won without a fight. I look forward to styling her hair and making her presentable." —JohnnyV

    Get it from Amazon for $6.50+ (available in 16 colors).

    20. Ouai Wave Spray to get a weightless texture that'll make everyone think you spent the day at the beach.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "This is my new holy grail when it comes to haircare. I have always had a 'meh' attitude toward my curly hair and have struggled to find something that gave me the look and feel I wanted. Not only does this provide the soft, bouncy curls I have always desired, I am actually able to pull off 'second-day' hair — something I have only previously been able to do with blowouts." —OCDiva

    Get it from Sephora for $26. Cruelty-free.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I'm a stylist of nine years, I've straightened many heads in my lifetime, I NEEDED THIS NINE YEARS AGO! OMG! I use it prior to performing full blowouts on clients and it helps tremendously, especially for finicky children and teens. It's great for all hair textures. Just look at photos! I use it as my drying system, then follow with flat-iron pressing." —Vett Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99 (available in two colors).

    23. Davines' Oi Shampoo, a milky smooth formula infused with nourishing Roucou Oil for super soft hair that's easy to maintain.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've been using this shampoo for almost four years and I don't need to change it for another, my hair just loves it! It is worth the price and a little bit goes a long way. The scent is so delicious! I recommend using all the OI line from Davines." —liz estrada

    24. L'Oréal's CURVE IT Curl Taming Gel Cream to fight frizz, soften curls, and leave you with a hi-definition do.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have thick curly hair, and this stuff is my FAVORITE. I've tried so many different gels, mousses, and creams over the years, and I hope they never stop selling this. I use about five pumps of it on my hair (which is a few inches past my shoulders). It holds my curls, reduces frizz, and doesn't make my hair feel greasy or crunchy. I recommend this to all of my curly-haired friends." —Danyel

    Get it from Amazon for $10.60.

    26. Drybar's Detox Dry Shampoo, which uses a super-absorbent formula to make your greasy hair feel fresh and clean between washes.

    Sephora

    Promising review: "No lie. This stuff is incredible. I never truly understood dry shampoo, because I've never found that it actually replaced real shampoo until I tried this stuff. I can literally go a week without washing my hair if I give it a quick blast with this. Now I can get up on Monday, take my time doing my hair, and literally don't have to wash again until Saturday...and I was a RELIGIOUS every-other-day hair washer. No one can tell that I haven't washed it, either. I get more compliments on my hair at the end of the week than the beginning! Doesn't hurt that I really like the smell as well. This will be a part of my beauty routine forever. Can't say enough good things." —bethika32

    Get it from Sephora for $23 (available in two scents and sizes). Cruelty-free and leaping bunny certified.

    28. Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing & Texturizing Powder, an instant hair booster that could help give you the volume you'd only ever achieved by turning up your music.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I have never been a fan of back combing my hair to get volume. I feel like it doesn't stay and looks messy. Finally thinking that I had to take the plunge and start backcombing, I asked my hairdresser if there was a way to do it in order to not damage my hair. I was so happy to hear her say backcombing was not necessary for getting lasting volume!! She introduced me to Big Sexy Hair Powder Play and I have been hooked ever since! I have never been happier with a purchase for my hair!! I have stick straight, fine hair that is hard to style. It doesn't hold and curl and gets greasy really easily. If this sounds like your type of hair, you NEED to try this product. A little bit goes a long way, and I have now been able to style my hair in ways I never used to. It has opened a whole new world for hair styling and I am so glad I was introduced to this product. High quality at a great price!!" —Corissa Hawks

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.
